View from the Ledge: A Reader Reports on the Closing Bell While Enjoying the President’s Club


“Hi Holly, Its 2:05pm on Friday MDT, 4:05 pm EDT. I am sitting in the President’s Club waiting for a delayed LH. The delay allowed me to witness a spectacle. At about 1:59 people started getting up and gravitating towards the TV screen by the bar. It wasn’t a scandal, it wasn’t an assasination, it was the closing bell in New York. The bell rang at 2pm local and half the room walked over to see the news (flat). You’d think the Superbowl was on though people’s faces weren’t quite that excited.

Thought it worth noting to you given your comments on PlaneBuzz.

Interesting times.

Try and have a good weekend.”
